FREEMAN MARINE 2400 Series Cast Deck Hatches are specified and used on a wide variety of yachts, fishing boats, tugs, barges, research vessels, offshore tenders, rescue craft and other workboats.
The FREEMAN deck hatch is designed for new boats, for replacing other deck hatches in standard openings, or for improving existing craft. They can be installed in any deck style or material using stock or custom deck rings.
There are many reasons to make Freeman Hatches your number one choice in closure selections….
Evenly spaced dogging arms (either 3, 4 or 8 per hatch) exert uniform pull on the cover plate. Handle position shows when dogging arms are engaged or loose.
Simply grasp the handle and pull, the shaft slides up into place, and with less than a quarter of a turn the locking mechanism completely disengages. It’s a matter of one or two seconds.
Handle Stays Put
The handle is built in – permanently part of the hatch so it’s right where you need it every time. Can’t get lost.
Hatch and handle fit flush with the deck, the handle in recessed lock position. Say goodbye to lost cover wrenches – the FREEMAN Cast Hatch handle is always there when you need it.
Developed and manufactured under various patents by FREEMAN MARINE.
With the locking mechanism disengaged, the hatch is merely resting on the deck ring and can be lifted out with one hand. Closing is just as quick and easy. Optional inside escape handle performs the same easy way with a push and turn from below.
